"Queer activists have put up a bust of Marsha P Johnson in a New York City park, after waiting years for the city to deliver a promised monument."

"On Monday (August 24), which would have been Johnson’s 75th birthday, a group of New York activists took matters into their own hands.

Sculpted by queer artist and sex worker Jesse Pallotta, a bust of Johnson was put up in Christopher Park, nearby to the historic Stonewall Inn."

@porsupah I love the idea of leaving holes in her crown for flowers! Such an engaging, person-scale sculpture too

@g1comics Absolutely! That was an inspired touch. ^_^
